We have spent a lot of time and effort designing and perfecting hydroponic systems that are easy to use and understand, so that you can get optimum results from your grow projects.
So what is hydroponics? The word, Hydroponic, comes from Latin and means working water. Simply put, it is the art of growing plants without soil.
Any plant needs 3 main things to live and thrive, those being water, oxygen and nutrients. If you put a plant in an environment where it receives the exact amount of nutrients, water and oxygen it needs, the plant will thrive and reach its absolute potential with very little effort when compared to growing it in soil.
With hydroponics the plants are grown in a growing medium (see page) and a perfectly balanced, pH adjusted nutrient solution is delivered to the roots in a highly soluble form. This allows the plant to uptake its food with very little effort as opposed to soil, where the roots must search out the nutrients and extract them. This is true even when using rich, organic soil and top of the line nutrients. The energy expended by the roots in this process is energy better spent on vegetative growth and fruit and flower production.
If you grow two genetically identical plants using soil for one and hydroponics for the other, you will almost immediately see the difference this factor makes. Faster, better growth and much greater yields are just some of the many reasons that hydroponics is being adapted around the world for commercial food production, as well as a growing number of home and hobby gardeners.
